siemens solid edge

The Solid Edge software can be cosidered in 2 different sections. There are the tools specifically dedicated to the Greenpower project learning activities and then there is a large range of learning activities including the addition of ART, promoting creativity in the STEM project learning framework. Hence the use of Solid Edge can be considered as a means by which students improve their abilities in the design of their vehicles.

Solid Edge learning tools have been created with simple access for students and teachers.

At each of the classes there is a large range of videos permiting students to develop their knowledge of Solid Edge tools, related directly to the creating of complex geometric forms, examples of which are visible in the videos below:

SPECIFIC TOOLS HAVE BEEN DESIGNED FOR STUDENTS PARTICIPATING AT DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF GREENPOWER

GOBLINS

To view the assembled car that children are constructing, students and teachers have access to the Solid Edge Mobile Viewer, which can be downloaded for Windows, IPad & Android.

F24 Y F24+

In the Assembly instructions link you can see how each step of the assembly process is clearly explained. Examples include:

Steering Geometry

At the steering geometry link there is information and tools to help sutdents and teachers understand how to set up the steering geometry for the optimum efficiency and stability.

F24 Kit bodywork design

At the F24 Body Design link, classes are prepared to prepare different body panels of progressive complexity.

At the Gear Up University page, there is also a range of video tutorials for Greenpower.

Different ideas on how to design your own aeridynamic bodywork are also available at the following links
